Hmm...I'm a little torn on this one, to me it is a good idea to caveat any job with safety concerns, however, I'm not sure that going to the point of discouraging folks from tackling a job is a good idea or best serves the purpose of the forum. In my mind, it is really up to the operator of the vehicle to know his or her limitations or the limitations of the person working on their vehicle. With good procedural guidance and some mechanical know how, there are very few tasks that the average shade tree mechanic cant tackle. I don't think the forum should be trying to rate difficulty, only sharing knowledge, it should be up to the user to decide what level risk they feel they are taking on.
That said, if the question is specifically related to difficulty then the qualitative type answers are applicable, users should use candor in their responses in this case and only talk to their level of expertise. I don't think any of the qualitative type responses warrant regulation or some level of standardization as, again, it should be up to the reader to decipher their own capabilities.
